Oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfast foods. It’s warm and satisfying and you can make it whatever you want it to be in terms of extras and toppings.

When I was kid, I wasn’t such a fan of oatmeal but more so the Cream of Wheat variety. But even so, that milky bowl that my mom would prepare gave me that same sort of cozy feeling that I get when I eat a bowl of oatmeal now.

Maybe it’s a sense of nostalgia…

But it’s so worth it every time. Luckily, my kids enjoy it just as much as I do!

I am quite particular about the way I like my oatmeal. The creamier the better in my book loaded with lots of goodies. My favorite being blueberries, cinnamon & real maple syrup. I also frequently throw in some coconut and chia seeds as well…yum! I find that most people have their favorite way to eat it.

If you are not a fan of oatmeal, you will be after trying this version. I promise.
